. will that be the political story that shapes this week. >> i'm s.e. cupp. the obama teamworked hard to lower expectations before the debate and the president lowered them more during the debate. >> i'm toure. last week my team crushed the opponent to clinch victory. >> see you. see you. another home run for granderson. his second of the night. yankees lead 10-2. >> the new york yankees won the a.l. east. what did you think i was talking about? >> all right. let's take a breath, relax, and become immersed in "the cycle" for this thursday, october 4th.

themselves that question the past couple of weeks. i think frankly liberals ought to ask them that question. does barack obama want to be president? he looked like he'd rather have his toenails removed with a dull, rusty blade than on that stage that last night? >> does he wants to support education? he says he won't cut education. that is different from congressman paul ryan's budget, who is the guy that you conservatives champion as the truth teller for your party. the list goes on and on for taxes as well. so the guy you're saying who showed up yesterday, if the scorecard is correct, is as far from a conservative, a re masum you can put on the table. if you were honest, that's not the guy you would vote for, maybe someone in the middle, a moderate republican. but you a staunch conservative would not vote for mitt romney, the one na showed up last night? >> well, one of the things -- your question, of course, answers why i've done what i did the last five years trying to stop him from being the nominee, but he did effective things defending conservative values last night. if you look at o

interesting story lines today and for the next two weeks is how does the obama campaign react to what happened last night in. >> oh, absolutely. >> we're going to find out. because maybe we're missing something. i can't figure it out. >> listen, i think they'll even admit, mika, that mitt romney had a great night, but they're going to go in. we're talking style here. >> i know. >> because that's what moves debates. they're going to pick apart everything mitt romney said. we're going to see it on 30-second ads. >> and all their inconsistencies. a lot of them. >> there's a lot to pick at now because there's much more specificity on the table, and some of the things romney said last night are vulnerable to attack in new ways, new and effective ways for the president. >> too bad he wasn't attacked last night. joe klein, thank you very much. >> thank you, joe. >>> ahead, chuck todd will join us from the debate site in denver. coming up, senior adviser to the obama campaign, david axelrod. and in a few minutes, senior adviser to the romney campaign, ed gillespie. keep it right here on "morning joe."

of government, romney or obama? megyn: fox news alert, we confirmed in just the last half hour that fbi agents have now arrived in benghazi, libya, three weeks after the murder of four americans at our consulate. remember, two navy seals, a state department staffer and ambassador chris stevens were killed there on 9/11 of this year. the obama administration initially suggested the violence was sparked by anger over an anti-muslim film posted in part on the internet, but senior u.s. intelligence sources later said this was a deliberate and organized terror attack, and they told fox news that the administration knew that, was informed of that within 24 hours, leaving the question about why ambassador susan rice was sent out to the sunday shows -- among other administration officials -- to say something very different. coming up in minutes, curks t mcfarlane joins us on new revelations about the security at our embassy just before this attack and a dreadful situation in syria right now. ♪ megyn: but back, now, to our top story today, the fallout from last night's presidential debate. earlier po
